EFB Guidance Library

The Electronic Flight Bag Guidance Library has moved. Click here to view the updated resource. The information below may be outdated and my not reflect current policy and regulations. It is maintained for archival purposes only.  Electronic Flight Bag guidance and policy is always evolving, and while following resources are the most pertinent at the time of this writing, new policies and guidance may be available. Operators may use this EFB Guidance Library as a starting point for additional research. CALL FOR COMMENTS: The FAA has released a draft of AC 120-76B, "Guidelines for the Certification, Airworthiness, and Operational Use of Electronic Flight Bags (EFB)". Learn more about the new policy here. Title 14 CFR Part 91.21: "Portable Electronic Devices" Traditional EFBs are typically not permanently mounted in the aircraft and are considered Portable Electronic Devices (PEDs). Since as early as 1963, Gerneral Aviation operators flying under Part 91 rules have been able to authorize the use of these PEDs (in the cabin or in the cockpit) using the authority granted under Title 14 CFR Part 91.21: "Portable Electronic Devices". Under Part 91.21, the operator or Pilot In Command may authorize the use of a PED during any phase of flight. FAA Advisory Circular 92.21-1B: "Use of Portable Electronic Devices" AC 92.21-1B, "Use of Portable Electronic Devices", provides guidance on how the Pilot In Command operating under Part 91 rules can evaluate Portable Electronic Devices (PEDs) for non-interference and authorize them for use in flight. This AC was updated in 2006 to address concerns regarding Transmitting Portable Electronic Devices (T-PEDs), such as mobile phones, and Medical-Portable Electronic Devices (M-PED), such as automated external deibrilators (AED). Title 14 CFR Part 91.503: "Flying equipment and operating information" CFR 91.503 lists specific equippage requiements for Part 91 Subpart F Operators (Operators of Large and Turbine-powered Aircraft).… Read more ...
